Questions & Answers

Question:
What happens when I deactivate or delete my Slack account?
Answer:

Deactivating your account won't delete messages or files you've shared. It is recommended that you delete content you'd like to remove before deactivating your account.

Question:
Can I reactivate a deleted or deactivated workspace?
Answer:

No. Deleting a Slack workspace cannot be undone: once you delete a workspace, all of its messages and files will be irretrievable, so it is recommended that you download a copy of your data first. You can, however, sign up again with the same email address. Click here for more on exporting data.

Question:
If I am not the primary owner of a workspace can I delete my account?
Answer:

No, but you can deactivate it. Deactivation is the same as deletion essentially. For deactivation you are deleting your account that is tied to the workspace, not the whole workspace.

Question:
Can I transfer ownership of my workspace instead of deleting my account?
Answer:

Yes. Once you transfer ownership you will be an account holder. As an account holder you have the option of deactivating your account.

Question:
Does deactivating my Slack account delete every workspace?
Answer:

No. For every workspace you've joined, you'll need to deactivate each account individually.
